MOPS Newsletter from Mrs. Joy Burger

Have you heard the awesome news?! We have a MOPS group right here at Richfield Nazarene! If you’re looking for new friendships, yummy food, new themes each month, crafts, laughter, a closer connection to God, and lots of great “Mom Stuff”, then MOPS is the place for YOU! Childcare is available for your kiddos from birth to Kindergarten in a program called “MOPPETS” - they’ll have a blast, too! The cost for registration is $24.95 for the year, which will give you tons of great benefits—as a woman, as a wife, as a mom . . . The list goes on and on!  To register, please contact Mrs. Joy Burger at: or the church office at 810.653.6218. Regular meetings will be held on the 2nd Thursday of each month and “MOPS ON THE MOVE” will take place during the 4th week of each month! Invite a friend to join you—we’re going to “We Are The Starry Eyed" (this year’s theme!) Are you ready for THIS?!!! 

What is MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) all about? 
Welcoming to all Women
We've all been placed in this time and place in history, as the tribe of women who are raising the world. And the beauty of it is that we don’t all have to agree with one another but everyone is in and we all need each other.
Sometimes we need a wise woman who has been there and done that to bounce ideas off of. That’s why we love our Mentor moms, they have sage advice and willing ears.
Leadership Development
You have the ability to do big things. We want to help you gain the confidence to use your voice to change your world.
Honest Conversation
Real talk is liberating. It frees us from assumptions that we are alone in our struggles. We value taking a risk and sharing your story in order to heal someone else from their isolation.
Relevant Teaching
Really, who needs another tutorial on how to make crepe paper flowers? What we provide is mommy friends who get you, hope-filled insight, and speakers who know we've only had three hours of uninterrupted sleep last night so they better keep it interesting.
Creative Activities
Create, imagine, and actually finish a project. We occasionally like to have something "pinteresty" (Yes, that is a made up word. Work with me here.) to make at our meetings. We all need a little time to indulge in a creative endeavor.
Look, we all love our kids, but let’s be honest: a little break now and then makes us want to be with them even more. We provide a preschool-style experience for your kiddos that they will love going back to.
